Scene at Fashion Week

One month ago today, we posted a shot of legendary New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham asking Crystal Nicodemus, our Fashion Week street style photographer, to jump for a photo. We were certain she’d end up in one of his stories, and sure enough, Crystal appeared in yesterday’s print edition and the online slideshow narrated by Bill.

Today marks the last day of Paris Fashion Week and the end of Fashion Month. We’re feeling a mixture of sadness, happiness and relief over making it through unscathed (take that, Mother Nature!).

Here’s the final batch of regular Scene Snaps from our street style photographer, Crystal Nicodemus—stay turned for a special models-only edition coming tomorrow.

Rise and shine! I knew the day was going to be a great one after I saw the Junya Watanabe show this morning. One of my favorite shows all season! Everything from the clothing to the hair to the the piano music that went forward and backward in all sorts of tempos! This is why j’adore la mode!

Immediately after was the Haider Ackermann show—gorgeous and simple, clean and austere. (Kind of sounds like I’m describing a chardonnay, right? LOL.) True vision and talent. Woo-hoo to Haider.

I’m always on the hunt for new collections for the Pop-In Shops. These would be perfect for our upcoming surf-inspired shop in mid-April! Stay tuned!

Oooh la la! Bonjour, la Tour Eiffel! My, how big you are. During Fashion Week, I like to find non-fashion things to do as well. And what could better fit that bill than the Salon International de l’Agriculture? It was an entire expo center on the outskirts of Paris dedicated to education about farm animals, new farming methods and techniques, and tons of foods and wines…

…and cheeses…

…and a booth dedicated to dog tees. Tempting!

After all that running around, I stopped at a great Korean restaurant called JanTchi, in the 2nd arrondissement. A quick veggie bibimbap for me and a long laugh with my friend Joey temporarily refueled me to keep it moving.

My dear friend Olympia Le-Tan presented an adorable collection entitled “I Put a Spell on You.” And she is truly magical.

And for dinner after my dinner: a jar of cornichons with my good friend Tomoko from Barneys. We caught up at Cinq-Mars and I couldn’t stop thinking/talking about the Dries show.

The enormous Damien Hirst butterfly piece that was paired with the Schiaparelli butterfly dress had to be rolled into the museum. (In my head, it looks like these French people rolling in a giant wheel of cheese. I’m quietly chuckling to myself.) And i just loved his reference to all these famous Hollywood kisses. Très romantique! Bisous!

“Hi, Paris! I’m here.”

After stopping in NYC to drop off Alex and Spy (pictured above, watching movies and napping on the plane) I landed at CDG and hit the ground running.

Stop numéro un had to be the amazing Dries Van Noten* exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. It’s all about the inspirations that go into his work and it’s an AMAZING show.

And he gave us a personal tour! That’s me with Dries and Jennifer Wheeler of Nordstrom. If you can’t see the show yourself, I recommend looking for the book–it’s also beautiful.

After that I stopped by Le Bon Marché to see the Proenza Schouler exhibition–so psychedelic and cool!

I finished the first day with dinner at Nanashi, one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in Paris, but of course I was too tired and hungry and busy eating to even take a picture :/ Oh well. More shenanigans tomorrow!
